    This park located at the Upper Peirce Reservoir is harder to reach than the rest of the parks in this area, as it is at the end of a long road where the entrance is along Old Upper Thompson Road.

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The best way to go to the MacRitchie, Seletar and Pierce Reservoir areas in central Singapore is by car because their location is not really in the city area. Another good thing is that there are lots of car parks at the various locations and they are free of charge every day.

    Sometimes you will meet the local people catching various creatures in the rainforest, especially fishes in the streams. When we were there, we met the old man in this photograph who managed to catch a few big fishes in the stream using very simple techniques. Apparently, he is very experienced in catching fishes in this area.

Seletar Reservoir Park Warnings and Dangers

  • Snakes, monitor lizards etc

    You may encounter snakes, monitor lizards and other animals in the rainforest trails. Do not panic when you encounter them. Stay calm and let them move past you. Remember that they are more frightened by you then you are frightened of them because you are much bigger and they may think you are a predator.

    Favorite thing: The various trails around the MacRitchie, Seletar and Pierce Reservoir areas are wide and well paved. There are very good signboards to guide you in the right direction, ample shelters for resting and ranger stations located at specific locations. As such, you don't have to worry much about the above.
